minute now to talk about the sweeping gun control advice that he's gotten from vice president joe biden's task force, what it means for the country and legislatively moving forward is anybody's guess, but we'll know in a couple of minutes. joining me in studio, alex wagner, host of msnbc's "now" and steve kornacki. what are you anticipating the president's going to come out with? we keep hearing big, keep hearing bold. >> it's bold in the context it's been two decades since any movement in gun control, the brady bill, five-day waiting period in '93, then you have to go back to 1968 for anything before that. >> guys, let's go ahead. there's vice president joe biden. let's listen to him. >> innocents that were murdered 33 days ago. our heart goes out to you. and you show incredible courage, incredible courage being here, and the president and i are going to do everything in our power to honor the memory of your children and your wives with the work we take up here today. it's been 33 days since the nation's heart was broken by the horrific, senseless violence that took place at sandy hook

engineering more murders. and using joe biden to run the task force is like hiring osama bin laden to take care of our children.

. >> ed lavandera, austin, texas. thank you very much. >>> vice president joe biden's task force is recommending that gun trafficking be defined as a federal crime. according to politico, the white house has defined 19 executive actions where the president may act unilaterally. others are mulling these executive orders because of the difficulty in enacting new gun legislation in congress. president obama is expected to lay out his proposals formally next week. >>> the house is expected to debate on the second part of the disaster from superstorm sandy. lawmakers have been pushed for the $51 billion relief measure and conservative republicans have complained the price tag is too high and including spending that has nothing to do with the storm. >>> twisted metal and wrecked carriages. this was a scene in egypt overnight as a train derailed. railway officials say at least 19 people were killed, more than 100 people were injured. >>> about 150,000 children in new york city will have to find another way to get to school tomorrow? why? school bus drivers say they're going on strike. t
states is somehow the equivalent of hitler for asking joe biden to lead a task force on gun violence. this was a recently constructed home page on the drudge report, which was vocalized vaingloriously by this gentleman. >> hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. mao took the guns. fidel castro took the guns. i'm here to tell you 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. >> unfortunately, messrs. lapierre and jones are being historically inaccurate. the suggestion that hitler promoted gun control is actually pretty wide of the mark. in fact, gun control was forcibly imposed upon germany following the treaty of versailles after the first world war. in 1919 the reichstag inacted regulations that asserted that all firearms as well as all kinds of fire ammunition are to be surrendered immediately. thereafter the german government began to liberalize these laws. in 1928 the law explicitly revervoked the 1919 law. and then in 1938 hitler and the nazis produced new law that is really loosened the regulation. the weapons law of march 18, 1938, completely deregulated the ac
